Yael Naim Album Review

Yael Naim is a French-Israeli singer-songwriter who has two albums released to date. Her first Album was self-titled and released in 2007 followed by a year long promotional tour around the world.  You may have experienced Yael’s beautiful voice on the Apple commercial for the MacBook Air. They featured “New Soul” for the commercial.  New Soul has been downloaded nearly 1.5 million times in the US!  Yael is the first Israeli solo artist to have a Top 10 hit in the U.S.

The first time I played Yael’s new album titled She was a Boy it reminded me of something that would be featured on Grey’s Anatomy. I searched on google and found out that yes Yael Naim has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy Season Five season finale, Hollywood, Mon Amour, Flashdance What a feeling. I also found out her music was on the most recent Grey's last Thursday May 12, 2011. Yael albums is very relaxing but fun and upbeat. I love to listen to She was a Boy while cooking, blogging even just before bed. I find her voice very soothing and fun. I love all the songs on the album but I think my favorite is Come Home. Something about the music I really enjoy.
Yael doesn't work in a regular studio. I found it really interesting reading about Yael and her longtime musical partner David Donatien and how they work together in Yael’s apartment/studio. Here is what Yael has to say about composing her music. “Composing is something I do alone—it’s very intimate, and it happens quickly. Then I start the arranging and recording process with David. We do everything at home because we need to be in that secluded environment. You can never be completely alone in a big studio; there’s always an engineer or an assistant around. So you can’t be half-naked or record something at 4 o’clock in the morning.” Naim laughs. “At home I have complete freedom.”
